Ahead of the commencement of the new contract for "Sunderland Connect" service 700, this vehicle has been repainted into a plain green base livery. The three "Sunderland Connect" branded vehicles gained a promotional wrap-style advertisement to celebrate Christmas in Sunderland during the festive season in 2014. The removal of the wrap-style advertisement in January 2015 resulted in the paintwork being left in poor condition. Nexus recognised this, and included repainting the three Hybrid vehicles as part of the contract.
